The purpose of this study is to understand the relation between the land use status in watersheds and stream turbidity. Major water quality components (flow rate, turbidity, SS, BOD, TN, TP, etc.) of two streams (Jaun and Naerin) and the land use status for each correspondent watershed have been analyzed through the field sampling and the geographical overlaying of land use and watershed map. The detailed results of this study showed that; turbidity has been increased rapidly from 1.9 to 13.0 NTU for Jaun Stream, 0.4 to 0.7 NTU for Naerin Stream, due to the increased flow rate during the period of June. The agricultural area of the Jaun watershed was $13.5km^2$ (10.1% of the overall watershed), comparing to $2.0km^2$(1.4%) of upper watershed of Naerin stream. The forest was widely distributed along the 30m buffering zone from the center of Naerin stream, which comprised 64.14% of the whole watershed area. But in case of the Jaun, the ratio of forest was 17.84%, while the ratio of farming field was 30.33%.
